This editorial from Florida calls upon Florida Gulf Coast University administrators to name the nature of the Title IX complaint. We also get some FGCU history including the fact that the athletic program was started by Merrily Dean Baker, a pioneer in women's sports and one of the few women to head a Big Ten athletics department, ten years ago when the state university opened. Her intent was to make it equitable from the start. And now, as FGCU is readying itself to join the NCAA, they have to contend with equity complaints that they will not discuss.
But that does not mean some are not trying to get FGCU to be a little more forthright. The Naples Daily News still has pursued getting a copy of the complaint under public information laws. They also tracked down the athletic director who is on vacation in South Carolina bu he wouldn't give a comment either. The university is adamant about getting through the investigation before any information is released.
